NYT: "Trump Paid $750 in Taxes"

President Donald Trump paid just $750 in federal income taxes the year he ran for president and in his first year in the White House, according to a report Sunday in The New York Times.

 

Trump, who has fiercely guarded his tax filings and is the only president in modern times not to make them public, paid no federal income taxes in 10 of the past 15 years. He campaigned for office as a billionaire real estate mogul and successful businessman.

 

Speaking at a news conference at the White House, Trump dismissed the report as “fake news” and said he has paid taxes, though he gave no specifics.

 

The disclosure, which the Times said comes from tax return data it obtained extending over two decades, comes at a pivotal moment ahead of the first presidential debate Tuesday.

 

 A lawyer for the Trump Organization, Alan Garten, and a spokesperson for the Trump Organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press on the report.
 

Garten told the Times that “most, if not all, of the facts appear to be inaccurate.”

 

He said in a statement to the news organization that the president “has paid tens of millions of dollars in personal taxes to the federal government, including paying millions in personal taxes since announcing his candidacy in 2015.”

 

During his first general election debate against Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016, Clinton said that perhaps Trump wasn’t releasing his tax returns because he had paid nothing in federal taxes.

 

Trump interrupted her to say, “That makes me smart.”

  • In 2017, a single worker without children who made $18,000 would have paid $760 in federal income tax. Donald Trump paid $750.

 

  • Nearly, every undocumented immigrant working in the US pays more in federal taxes than Donald Trump.


You have to give Trump this much, he paid more in federal income taxes than many of the biggest corporations did in 2018:


Amazon: $0


Chevron: $0


Delta: $0


Deere: $0


Eli Lilly: $0


GM: $0


Goodyear: $0


Halliburton: $0


IBM: $0


JetBlue: $0


Molson Coors: $0


Netflix: $0


During the “best economy ever,” which Trump repeatedly claims to have engineered, he and his company managed to lose a lot of money.

Everyone outside the Trump Alternate Reality Bubble knew 4 years ago there were good reasons Trump was HIDING his Tax Returns from the American public. I suspect this is only the beginning. We will almost certainly find out a lot more in the coming weeks or months. 

 

If Hillary, Biden, or Obama would have done this with their tax returns, those who reside in Trump World would have gone ballistic. They are the kings and queens of hypocrisy and double standards.

What a great day for a debate. Makes me think the NYT picked exactly when to release the story. More power to them.

 

 

Trump is an aperture in the fundament.

Trump's numerous trials will last a year.

 

Then he will be sentenced to jail the following year!

Are you telling us that Trump should be able to not pay taxes required by law, and not prosecuted for that?

The difference with Trump is he lies on his forms so he does not have to pay taxes. That is a crime, and why the IRS and the State of NY are after him.

For your information we have all know for quite some time Trump in creases values when borrowing, and decreases value reporting for taxes owed. That has been a proven fact for a few years now.

Now do you support Trump the tax cheat.

Proof?  Trump probably doesn't see his tax forms until he signs them!

And he still doesn't see them or know what he's looking at. 😆  Shame on him for signing then.  No excuse.  Moot point.  He just verifies and signs all responsibility over to himself.

Anyone can sign their tax return without reading it. Even if one does not read and understand the return they are certifying that it is correct and true by their signature.

That is a lame excuse. When he signs them he tells all they are true, and by his tax returns Trump has destroyed all his business. That alone is a good reason to get rid of Mob Boss Trump in Nov.

I pay as little as I can (legally) to the IRS.  I assume you do also.

I'm shocked 70k for personal hair styling services passes any loophole smell test.

djt and his freaking hair.  I bet he's willing locks of (what's left of it) to his children.  There's magic in that thar hair!  Ivanka may even make a necklace from her share.  Or weave it into her tiara.  Eric will sell off his portion strand by strand and swear he didn't.  Jr. will braid a tiny whip and hang it by the bathroom mirror.  Tiffany sends a note, "None of that for me thank you".  Baron will bury it, nobody needs to give him permission.
